  1. Keep all doors and windows closed and securely fastened. Doors should have deadbolt locks with one-inch throw and reinforced strike plate with three-intch screws. All windows should have window locks.
  2. Secure sliding doors. Place a metal rod or piece of plywood in the track and install vertical bolts to prevent burglars from forcing the door open or lifting it off the track.
  3. Always lock the door to an attached garage. Do not rely on your automatic garage door opener for security. When traveling, unplug the automatic garage door opener to ensure that burglars with universal remotes cannot trigger the door mechanism.
  4. If you are leaving the house, leave a light on. Even better: put a few lights on timer switches, or leave a radio playing, to create the illusion that you are home.
  5. Use low-wattage lights to illumnate the perimteter of your property.
  6. If you're away, have a trusted neighbor collect your mail and news papers while you are gone.
  7. Trim any hedges and bushes in front of your home that could allow burglars to hide from neighbors and passersby.
  8. Don't ignore your back yard. Residents often mistakenly think their back doors and windows are less likely to be hit.
  9. Try to keep very expensive jewelry out of the jewlry box. Instead, hide it in an inconspicuous container or small safe.
  10. Never leave money or valuables in front of windows.
  11. Record the serial numbers of expensive items and take photographs of expensive jewelry and other items that could be resold. Officers can use that information to track down stolen merchandise.
